Nikon Cameras


You can now use Nikon Cameras to acquire pictures using the IOC Snapshot Twain driver. This is for cameras that either have built-in wifi, or have a Nikon wifi adapter.

This works through the IOC Snapshot Twain Driver, in addition to the Open Dental Plugin, VixWin Snapshot and Kodak Snapshot. Twain works with Dexis, Dentrix, Eaglesoft, XDR, Apteryx, etc, etc.

This works in the background using another free program called Airnef which I put in the IOCSnapshot\Files folder. The Nikon camera must have good latency, be close to an access point, and you should be able to ping the the ip address of the camera. Also, the camera’s date and time must match the computer’s date and time for realtime transfers to work.

I would test the Nikon’s connection to your network with Airnef alone before using IOCSnapshot because I hide Airnef in the background so you cannot easily see what it is doing.

This is also, 100% untested. I just added it on 3/25/2020 and I don’t have any Nikon cameras to test with. So if you have a Wireless enabled Nikon or have a Nikon Wifi Adapter, give me a shout and I will give you a free copy of IOC Snapshot.
